Obama’s gone - Hallelujah! Hillary didn’t win - even better. And the nation has been saved … well, hold on, let’s think about this.
As an American, I am delighted that Clinton was denied the White House and that’s putting it mildly. However, as a believer, I still have concerns about the future of the nation and the new administration. Where the nation is concerned, are we truly prepared to change our hearts and not just our policies? Where President Trump is concerned, will he conduct himself as a true servant of the people and, more importantly, a servant of God and the Christian so many have claimed him to be? Has the nation really been saved? On all counts I am hopeful that the response is “yes and Amen.” Of course, only in time can the final answer to these questions be revealed but let me say this today - January 20, 2017: though there have already been some encouraging signs, I do not believe the issue is settled - it is pending and God is watching to see what we are going to do from this point on.
Shalom. Here is the latest installment from the "For What It's Worth" department. In this posting, Bill shares more on his observations of the crazy political cycle we are currently witnessing. More importantly, how this political scene is connected to what is going on in the Body of Messiah.
The year was 1786 and a pioneer family from Virginia, having heard of the rich lands in the unsettled territory of Kentucky, purchased a large tract of land there and began to establish their homestead. Unfortunately for them, the wilderness of Kentucky was dangerous and so it was that on one ominous day, the patriarch of the family, Abraham, along with his three sons – Mordecai, Josiah and Thomas – were attacked by hostile Indians. Abraham was killed instantly.
Shalom everyone and chag sameach. Here is an article I wrote last Passover season and, for varying reasons, I decided to re-post this year. I hope you will read it (if you missed it last year) and that it will be an encouragement and blessing. Happy Passover!
“The teachings of the Bible are so interwoven and entwined with our whole civic and social life that it would be literally - I do not mean figuratively, I mean literally - impossible for us to figure to ourselves what life would be if these teachings were removed.” - Theodore Roosevelt
Shalom everyone; As many of you probably know, this weekend is the festival of Purim. People often have questions about this minor holiday and, so, I thought I would repost a short article I wrote a few years ago to explain my understanding of and position on celebrating Purim.
Less Messianic and More Messiah
“And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Y’shua the Messiah and Him crucified.” – 1 Corinthians 2:1-2
